My happy place is my room. It is so pretty and warm. It has everything I need to make me feel good. It has my pens and papers and my journals. It has my dolls (build-a-bears). Pictures that make me feel good. The bed is just great and I love, love taking my naps in my room. Maria helped me to create this special place and Beth helped to get it set up just the way I wanted it. So now I can just hide away and do what makes me happy. Write, create, sleep or just think (with my aromatherapy of course.) I can do everything that I want to do and it really does feel as good as I thought it would.
Dogs are great. They give you an unconditional love. They are the most loyal of all animals. I love, love having my dogs ❤
So this is going to be a great week. Chuck is coming over to finish up all of the projects we started this fall. So I’ll have the house pretty much done the way I want it. We are going to clean the garage today because it will be the last time we have nice weather. I’m getting a new refrigerator. I just want one. I don’t like the one I have and I’m going to get a new kitchen aid mixer. I’m going to bake this Christmas. I think making cookies will be fun. I have a tea group and I think I we will decorate them at one of the tea’s when it’s my turn to host the party. The tea parties are really a blast. We make all these really cool tea sandwiches and sweets. We also get to drink tea which has become one of my favorite things to do. There’s something about drinking tea that is so comforting. Let’s not forget what a tea party is really for and that’s the Chit Chat which is so much fun 🙂 I will post some pics of the tea party.
Life is good and I am blessed. Me and the husband are really enjoying our time together. It’s different than it was when we had the kids at home. But it’s really nice now. So much less drama and we make such a great couple. I really get why I had all of those life experience before now. I learned so much from them and it helps to deal with life as it is now. Everyone has something that they are dealing with. Life is not perfect and it never will be. Life can be cruel and it is not fair but you just have to play the hand you are dealt.
I learned along time ago about gratitude. If you look at your life like the cup is half full then you have a pretty good life. I refuse to be anything but happy. Oh I’m not saying I don’t ever get sad, because I do. But I just go back to my happy place and really count all of my blessings, and I have many. The first one and most important is I am healthy, but that is because I have been blessed by God who has always taken care of me. Had it not been for God and my religion (I’m Catholic) I don’t think I would have made it this far. That is where I get my strength from and as long as I keep God in my life, it will all be fine. Because really with God by my side in my world, all is good. God has taken out the people from my life that will cause me nothing but unhappiness and he tells me, “Don’t worry I’ll deal with them. You have done enough for them, it’s time for them to learn. I’ve got this, it’s your time to be happy no worries.”
Well enough of that, but it is Sunday and I like to talk about God at least for one day. So happy Halloween is over, I don’t know why but that holiday just, well I just don’t like it. I did find a pic of my sweet Connor and I just have to post it. Look at that smile, that really says it all about him. He is just a great young man who loves his life. Well he still has that smile and he can melt your heart. I love you Connor ❤
And of course here are a few of Matthew w/the ballet.
I just realized by looking at my pictures of our family, it’s like Halloween everyday 😉
Well I want to get this posted and get on with Sunday. Have a great day, thanks for reading. Blessings ❤
